SOFTBALL

Tunkhannock 4,

Maddie Kelley pitched a strong game for Dallas (3-11). She finished with seven strikeouts and three of the seven hits she allowed were infield singles.

“We’re just really young and not making the plays we should be making,” said Dallas coach Joyce Tinner, whose team has no seniors and started four freshmen and three sophomores. “Tunkhannock came to play today and they have a tough ball club. They’re going to be tough to beat.”
